Faith in Practice’s
life-changing medical missions to Guatemala provide short-term surgical, medical
and dental care while working to improve the economic and educational conditions of the indigenous Mayan people.
My niece, Terry, spends several weeks in Guatemala each year as part of the volunteer mission.

“Lawrence and I have been involved with Faith in Practice
for seven years. We recently completed fifteen village
trips and one surgery trip to Guatemala. We are the team administrators and usually work in the pharmacy. Preparation
for a team begins many months in advance by ordering all the medications, pre-packing them in doses, then organizing them
into trunks for transport to Guatemala. We are constantly recruiting team doctors, nurses and translators. Volunteers pay
their own way, and all donations are used to purchase medications, surgery for the patients, and transportation for the
patients in remote areas. We see around 2,500 patients during a typical village trip. The patients are tiny, Mayan Indians.
Their need is real and the poverty is extreme.”
